We've written about the Version 6 STI in our future classics article here, and this example of the RA version could be a great investment opportunity as the last rally-spec road going version of the classic shape. Offered here on motor-hub.co.uk, the prices of these limited edition classics are probably not going to get much lower. This one is asking £6,995, which represents a fairly reasonable deal on a version 6 STI, presuming it is in good mechanical order.
This particular car is a Japanese import, numbered 1,074 of 2,000 built, with its individually numbered plaque on the dash. The special edition RA version had a number of unique features. Standard equipment include the handmade engine produced by STi, exclusive ECU, quick-shift, power steering oil cooler, rear 2-way mechanical LSD, carbon strut tower bar, large size rear spoiler, roof ventilator and unique bucket seats and interior touches. A drivers control centre differential (DCCD) is employed to control the torque split between the front and rear wheels to handle the 206kw engine.
